Steak grilled with oranges #recipe plus book #giveaway


From Daryl aka Avery:

Well, I blew it. I had it on my calendar to give you a SUPER guest today, and my calendar ran off without alerting me. Yes, it's my calendar's fault. I'm sticking to that story.

So our SURPRISE guest will continue to be a surprise until I get her post up. Argh. Please tell me you make mistakes, too. I'd hate to be the only one.

Until then, I've got a super recipe that absolutely must be shared during the summer and a super giveaway.

Giveaway first: My next book, STIRRING THE PLOT, comes out in just a few weeks. September 30. Today, I'm going to give away two sets of the first two books in the series. That's right, FINAL SENTENCE and INHERIT THE WORD. If you already have them, you can always donate them to a library, family member or pal. And I'll throw in a Cookbook Nook/Cheese Shop mug to boot! So leave a comment and remember to leave your email, in case.

Now, for the recipe.

Do you love barbecue? I do! And I have to admit I'm a red meat eater on occasion. No more than once every couple of weeks, but there's something about a good juicy steak that makes me salivate. Also, I feel better the next day, so I'll bet my anemic blood cells need that boost. Again, that's my story, and I'm sticking to it! :)

I found this recipe...rather, my HUSBAND, found this recipe in the Food Network magazine. He loves that magazine! The pullout section they have with "50 ways" to do something...this time, beef...really appeals to him. He can read them out loud as if he's doing a poetry slam. Each of the "50" are about 50 words or less. Very cool.

So, here you have it. I would bet this recipe would work well with chicken breasts and pork, as well, so if you want to go leaner, try it!  I intend to.


RIB-EYE STEAK WITH MOJO MARINADE

Ala Food Network Magazine July 2014
Ingredients:

4 rib-eye steaks
2 oranges
1 lime
1 tablespoon chopped oregano
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
½ teaspoon kosher salt
(extra oranges for grilling)

1 teaspoon each, salt and sugar, for reducing marinade (*see below)

Directions:

Mix the juice of the oranges and lime with the oregano, garlic and salt. 


Set rib-eye steaks in a large pan (13 x 9) and drench with the marinade. Set aside for 20 minutes.



Remove the steaks and reserve the marinade.

Grill the steaks along with some orange wedges, about 2 per person! I like my steak medium rare. Depending on your grill, about 6 minutes a side.

*Meanwhile, boil the remaining marinade, and season with a teaspoon of salt and a teaspoon of sugar. Let cool slightly. Drizzle over cooked steaks.




What's your favorite meat or goodie on the barbie??

  1. We like to do London broil on the grill. Then we have the leftover meat on a salad a few days later.

  9. Fantastic photos, Daryl. And such a clever recipe. Of course, I seem to recall someone being kicked off a cooking show for cooking the leftover meat marinade. I guess they've changed their minds about that. I have to try this. Sounds absolutely delish!

    1. Krista, which show? Haven't heard that, but funny. It cooked up great. Just as if we were to make gravy, right, using the leftover juices?

      Thanks.

  16. My favourite treat on the grill is, in fact, steak, so I will definitely have to try this recipe. I saw, up thread, that another commenter and you mentioned being t-bone girls. Well, count me into that group, too. There's just something different, better, about meat cooked with the bone in or still attached.

    1. I know, right? I mean, I like a filet, too. So juicy, but I love meat with bone. Always have. When I was a girl, I liked to pull the chicken off the bone and just nibble on the bone. (My way of dieting. LOL)

  17. My favorite food on the grill is steak, and my favorite steak is rib-eye. The recipe sounds great and is definitely something I will try. I also love your books and am always excited when a new one is coming out.

  18. Sounds absolutely delicious. My favorite on the grill is porterhouse but due to budgetary restrictions, london broil does very well. Leftovers are great for salad. Look forward to each new book, mystery and laughs make a great combination. Waltsean@aol.com

  30. The pictures look enticing. I love to take leftover chicken, steak or pork chop and either make a spinach salad with it or make a stir fry or even some rice and mix it in with scrambled egg, green onions, and even some peas or carrots.

  31. I like boneless ribs and other boneless meats, like steak. Earlier today I had a Marie Callender's frozen meal with boneless pork ribs. I'm a meat and potatoes type of girl (and I love cheese, too!).

  32. Hotdogs have always been my favorite to have on the grill. Grilling them is the best way to bring out the flavor.
